Poppy had a good level of energy today but managed to settle down for her sessions. She did well for her obedience skills but is still struggling a bit with her roll over skill.
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!
"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session we worked on Poppy's loose lead skill outside. Poppy struggled with this - she pulled ahead a lot for the first several minutes until she started to settle down and engage with the trainer. Once she spent a bit of time walking nicely outside we brought her inside the classroom so that she would have other dogs as distractions. She did really well inside the classroom and kept good focus on the trainer. We also did a few drops while walking to keep her skill level high which she did great with. Next time we'd like to see her engaged with the trainer from much earlier in the session. At home keep up the good work and continue rewarding whenever she "checks in" with you during walks.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her second session we continued teaching Poppy her roll over skill. Poppy really struggles with this skill and is still very much in the teaching phase of this skill. We were able to get her to roll slightly onto her side but she would not roll onto her back with the lure. Next time we'd like to be able to get her to roll onto her back so that she has a better understanding of what we are asking. At home encourage her to roll onto her side and see if you can get her to move onto her back - if she does absolutely jackpot that reward!||Focus: Foundation||D|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her last session we did something fun and continued with Poppy's skateboard trick. She is really good at this already so the focus of the session was to keep encouraging her to use her back legs to move the board which she did most of the time. She does occasionally get a little over excited with this skill so getting her to focus was also important during this session. Next time we'd like to get her movement of the board smoother and have her stay in it until released. Keep having fun with Poppy at home and use tricks to get her excited for training!||Focus: Repetition||A|
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
